Description
"Mauricio es mexicano, guapo, sensible y sueña con convertirse en un gran fotógrafo. Jimmy vive en Miami, es profesor universitario y un apasionado de la política. Se enamoran y después de trece años de una sólida vida como pareja, solo una cosa parece ensombrecer su relación: cada día Jimmy está más convencido de que tienen que convertirse en padres. La idea es adoptar un bebé que complete la felicidad de la pareja. El problema es que para la gente como Mauricio y como Jimmy no será tan fácil formar una familia. Gente como yo no sólo explora el amor filial y la pulsión por la paternidad, además plantea preguntas fundamentales para la sociedad actual: ¿cuántos tipos de cariños, de parejas, de amistades, de familias y de vínculos afectivos existen en el mundo contemporáneo? ¿cómo se constituye una familia en la actualidad?, ¿cuáles son sus retos? En esta maravillosa historia de amor se da visibilidad a búsquedas y posibilidades que por fin se abordan sin tapujos." -- Provided by publisher.
Description
Mauricio is Mexican, handsome, sensitive, and dreams of becoming a great photographer. Jimmy lives in Miami, is a university professor and is passionate about politics. They fall in love and after thirteen years of a solid life as a couple, only one thing seems to be missing in their relationship: each day Jimmy becomes more and more convinced that they must become parents. In this wonderful love story, the characters not only explore filial love and the strange drive for parenthood but also raise fundamental questions for society: how many types of affection, couples, friendships, families, and emotional ties exist in the contemporary world? How is a family constituted today? What are its challenges? -- Provided by publisher.
